There are reports that the head coach of the Ghanaian senior national team, Claude Le Roy, is currently at loggerheads with his employers over allegations that he applied for the South Africa job...

The Ghanaian Football Association (GFA) had heard rumours of Le Roy's connection with the Bafana Bafana job, with confirmation apparently given by the SAFA shortly before Joel Santana was deemed the front-runner.

"We have so far received four CVs - including the one for the current Ghana coach Claude Le Roy - from an agent representing some top coaches," Morio Sanyane, a spokesperson for the South African Football Association (SAFA), told

"I can't say whether he will be appointed but our next line of action for the substantive coach should be known by 6 May."

The Frenchman is surely bound to face some disciplinary action from the GFA if these rumours are correct, and his situation is even made more precarious by his refusal to sign an additional two-year contract extension offered to him just after the 2008 African Nations Cup.

However, Le Roy has reportedly denied that he has any interest in leaving Ghana for the Bafana Bafana
